Mitla Copper Tray


SKU: SHI-AM/EL-33-13

Inspired from the Mixtec ruins of Mitla, 30 miles east of the capital of the state of Oaxaca. The small stone mosaic inlay for which Mitla is famous has aroused interest since colonial days and is unique in pre-Hispanic art and architecture. Tens of thousands of stones had to be cut to perfect size which has enabled the mosaics to weather the many earthquakes for which this region is famous.
